    So I have Vista 64x and one day I log on and this error appears and m
    Microsoft Office Suite has vanished claiming corrupted files an
    ordering me to run Check Disk. The Check Disk wouldn't run, so I save
    my stuff and popped in the System Restore Disk, it made it to 98
    loading Windows and then showed the following message "Windows canno
    access the required file E:\Sources\Boot.win Make sure all file
    required for installation are available, and restart the installation
    Error code: 0x80070020"

    Any help would be appreciated

    OOO boot.wim is the image to make your disc bootable I believe... you
    would have to rebuild that system restor disc from a different computer.
    eg. using Win PE, imagex or the like. If you are clueless with
    computers, find a vista geek you know to help ya. Although it is
    strange.. did you verify that disc when you created it? (maybe not eh?).
    if this system restore thing is the disc you mean from an OEM or so,
    than you better call them for a replacement as that one seems damaged or
    corrupted.

    (Alternatively... do you know if you can access the files on that dis
    on other computer? if so you could make a bootable DVD image and add th
    files from it)

    A step short from rebuilding it but also more likely to not wor
    properly
